7:03 am
a moment, and it's kind of like a little spiritual renewal. >> speaking of problems, we got swept away in the exuberance of the papal visit, how could we celebrate it in a unique, good day style? [laughter] so we created our own popemobile with the wax figure from madam madam madame tussauds, and then we drove around the block. a lot of people thought this was a real deal pope. >> and especially since we had monsignor franco in the car with us, and he works for the holy see. [laughter] >> people really got into it. i saw one person, you know, fell off their bike. >> it was insane. people were running to take pictures, they were alauding. >> the people found out about it. realized -- [laughter] you. they wanted to hug -- >> it was misplaced adulation
7:04 am
seeking on my part. >> exuberance. >> the police actually found out about this ask had a phone call or two. >> then they realized we weren't behind this, and we kind of embraced the idea of seeing this wax figure of the pope. >> all right. so is you can see it, by the way. look at that cute little kid. >> ah, it was really sweet. meanwhile, i'm excited. i'm part of the re-papal fess -- prepapal festivities. >> it's a big deal. we'll be there at madison square garden. yeah, there's a cool concert before the mass. much to do today, mike woods -- >> i get your autograph right now? >> no. hopefully, if i don't mess it up -- >> that's good. and you're both going to be there? >> yes. he's my partner in crime. >> we're not coming within a mile of the pope be, don't worry. >> still be cool to be there. anyways, happy friday, everyone.
7:05 am
different in terms of your weather, just some high clouds but still a lot of sunshine. temps not bad, just not as warm as the last couple of days. right now we've got 64 degrees at central park, 62 belmar, winds moving in from the those. we still have them going around 3-12 miles per hour, but they're pretty consistent from the northeast. makes it feel cool kerr, but other than that not a big deal. again, some more cloud cover, mainly high clouds, a little bit of mid cloudiness too but we don't have think rain issues for a while. this area of low pressure is going to try to force up that moisture, but the high pressure's a little stronger so, therefore, we're keeping the rain out until next week. today's high temp, 75. tomorrow we make it up to 72, 72 also on sunday, and that's when that area of low pressure tries to nudge some showers through
7:06 am
soggy. now we're going to get you to ines, she's got a lot to tell you about getting around. >> at the same time, i am noticing traffic a lot lighter than normal. street cleaning rules are suspended, religious effect. watch out for an accident on the saw mill southbound, that's blocking a lane. it's off to the shoulder off you come off the tappan zee bridge westbound, rockland side. your new jersey commute, 08 and 287, doing pretty good. let's go to queens. the lie eastbound, watch out for delays as you approach francis lewis boulevard, left lane is blocked because of an accident. delays eastbound there. and also yesterday the lin was really flowing i was hearing from a lot of people, sun glare could be an issues. let's go to brooklyn, the bqe heading towards the brooklyn bridge, normal delays
7:07 am
lincoln tunnel lighter than normal, a lot lighter, no delays inbound. the holland tunnel, it's about a five minute delay. you do have a little bit of a delay on the gwb, 15-20 on the upper level, lower level 5-10. trains are doing good, everything on or close. >> yesterday in the popemobile through the streets of new york city, did you notice? there was actually a cameraman in the popemobile -- >> it was a little shaky right outside st. patrick's cathedral, right? >> yes, it was. i think that camera are guy behind him is from the vatican. >> makes perfect sense. >> all right. so let's take a live look now at -- >> the papal residence on 72nd street, because that's where the holy father is. now, what we've learned is that he usually gets up at about 4:30 in the morning, and he prays about two hours. now, at this papal residence -- which i got a chance to go through last week -- >> again, 72nd between madison
7:08 am
>> yeah. on the same floor as where the pontiff is staying, there is a beautiful chapel. it's all wood and tiffany glass, and it was actually originally put there by the former mayor of city, hugh grant. >> must have been a long time ago. well, the pope is this our neighborhood, and it's exciting, but he'll be moving throughout the city, harlem, downtown, harden. let's go to our reporter -- madison square garden. let's go to teresa priolo outside. >> hey, good morning, everyone. it's kind of tough to see what's happening here because of the incredible police presence shutting down 72nd street and madison, but that is the papal residence just right behind that tree where you see the flag hanging. we are being told the pope is having breakfast this morning with some wealthy charitable families from manhattan, from new york city, so there is apparently some sort of private
7:09 am
the pope has a very, very busy day, so let's hope he got a good night's sleep here on the upper east side. when he so muched down yesterday, he did so in quite a fashion, and he quickly proved why he is so adored. the an arrival that was simply divine. welcomed by thousands of adoring faithful. accompanied by archbishop timothy cardinal dolan and greeted by the governor, senator and mayor, the open entered st. patrick's and sudden isenly stopped to bask in its mag think sense. he was then officially deemed a new yorker by cardinal dolan. >> once you enter through those famous door cans on fifth avenue, you became an official new yorker. [laughter] [applause] >> as he greeted the crowd, pope francis paid particular attention to the young, the old
7:10 am
and the disabled. throughout the vespers, his holiness used his homily to encourage a life of service to the disadvantaged. he also did what has not been done in some time, he thanked the women of the church. >> what would the church be without you, women of strength, fighters? with that spirit of courage to you, religious women, sisters and mothers of this people, i wish to say thank you. >> the arrival of the holy father has been anticipated for months. at his touchdown at jf the k, some -- jfk, some 200 people greeted him with cheers, flags and presents which made the pope laugh. his presence alone a blessing. >> he kissed me on the fore forehead and he gave me a held. >> i said mucho gusto to him, and he said it back. >> his now infamous fiat arriving before 9:00, and he's
7:11 am
to rise before dawn before he starts a jam packed day. another live look here on the upper east side at the papal residence. again, completely locked down. we do hope we will be able to get even the slightest glimpse of the holy father this morning although it seems unlikely because we are so far back. he's expected to leave between 7:45 and 8:00 and he heads to the united nations for that 8:30 address. >> boy, kind of cool. he's right there. thank you very much, teresa. >> well, the pontiff has a busy day, and you know he's not one to shy away controversial issues. >> he's speaking at the united nations here in new york city. robert moses has a review. >> greg and rosanna, good morning to you. the pope is due here at 8:30 this morning. he'll spend about two and a half hours in meetings, and then his
7:12 am
visit culminates in that half hour address which begins at about 10:20. he is the leader of 1.2 billion catholics around the world, but he has captivated many millions more than that. this morning pope francis becomes the fourth pope to address the united nations. the holy father is expected to discuss climate change, immigration and the need for peace. his friend be, monsignor franco, says his holiness has great respect for the u.n. >> he would like to speak as much as he could to give this kind of a message so that the whole world might in some way change for the better. >> pope francis is expected to address some of the same issues he discussed yesterday before a joint session of congress. >> mr. speaker, the pope of the holy see! >> the pope could for the abolishment of the death penalty, he discussed the need to protect the planet, and he said immigrants are a key part of our society.
7:13 am
>> we, the people of this continent, are not fearful of foreigners because most of us -- [applause] because most of us were once foreigners. >> while he doesn't explicitly talk about abortion, he made his opposition clear when he cited the golden rule. >> the golden rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development. [applause] >> members of congress interrupted the pope frequently with applause and standing ovations. it was an emotional day for house speaker john boehner who dabbed tears from his eyes. [cheers and applause] after his address to congress, the holy father walked out onto the speaker's balcony to thunld rouse applause. >> thank you. thank you very much and god
7:14 am
bless america. [cheers and applause] >> and this morning, this is a live look at first avenue right around 46th street. first avenue, as you can see, is closed to traffic. this area becoming more and more fortified as we near the pope's arrival. again, he is due here at about 8:30, will spend about two and a half hours here and then head downtown to the 9/11 museum. day awaits. that is the latest live from the u.n. this morning, back to you. >> that looks pretty intense around you. everybody -- lots of press. okay, thank you. >> all right. >> a lot of people today around town, huh in. >> also msg, lots of traffic. the pontiff is going downtown, uptown, midtown, you name it. ines has been telling us all morning it's going to be tough to get around. lots of people, i think, are
7:15 am
taking it with great stride, i have to say. >> we're all rolling with the punches. but the big mass will be tonight at harden. let's go to -- at madison square garden. let's go to liz dahlem. >> i know you're going to be heading down here in a couple of hours, and the excitement is certainly starting to build amongst members of the media, for sure. we're excited to get a glimpse of the crowds heading in, but i want to show you the security preps going into play right now. we just saw a big group of police and secret service members walking in and out of penn station, that has been happening all morning as well as k-9 units and this is going into pope's visit. we have to tell you two things that commuters need to keep in mind if they're heading to penn station. it are remain open during the mass, but only two entrances will be accessible, the one on 34th and seventh avenue and the second one right on seventh avenue at 32nd street. there are a lot of road closures
7:16 am
in place, and you can expect this area to be pretty crowded the rest of the day. some of the streets around madison square garden will be locked down. 31st to 34th street between sixth and eighth avenues, long island railroad is adding eight extra penn station-bound trains this evening. other pockets to the city will have significant closures due to the pope's agenda. streets around the united nations, the 9/11 memorial and museum, 112th street this harlem where the pope will be visiting a school and the area of central park west. new yorkers know the city could be tough to get around -- >> i'm not coming here tonight. brooklyn. >> why? >> because i want to get home. i don't want to be stuck here. >> are you nervous at all about the congestion -- >> i'm a little nervous about it. i'm meeting a friend, because i have another ticket, and she's
7:17 am
other than that, you know, i'm just so happy to see him. i think he's like jesus. >> i loved talking to that last woman. she's going to be heading to central park today. and i'm sure we're going to hear a lot more stories. the mass begins at 6:00, and anybody inside who was there during the mass will have to stay in place a half hour after the pope leaves for security reasons, so this area should be really busy all throughout the night. we're live outside of madison square garden, greg and rosanna, back to you. >> i know. we got our tickets, liz. how are you figuring -- have you figured out how you're getting there? >> the logistics of it? i though the security is intense, but -- >> it's. >> we're going to let people in. we apologize for that commotion we caused on the upper east side with an imitation pope. >> well, it's a wax figure that was basically, you know, debuted here on good day new york,
7:18 am
madame tussauds, and it was so lifelike, and people came running from everywhere. >> it took a while. we actually went around the block twice. the first time, no big deal. curiosity. the third time, worderline riot -- borderline riot. >> a bit of a commotion. some people thought it was the real deal -- this was ridiculous. >> you had nothing -- why were you hugging everyone? >> i was trying to exploit it. i was riding the wave. i saw mike woods get in on the action -- >> i fell for your trick. i fell for your trick, huh? >> oh, we saw mike out there too. >> yeah, exactly. i started taking video, and i was like, oh, i got dupe asked. actually, i went to dinner last night, i think they saw you, they were like, no, we got a picture, they were in the back of the convertible murano.

7:25 am
all different feints, muslims, there are, of course, critics. but, you know, today is a day that reflect ares who pope francis is, a man who wants to bridge the gap between faiths, a man who wants people of opposite faiths or of differing faiths to not change their faith, but to just trust in other faiths. that is really the key message that he's trying to impart here. earlier this morning i spoke with a woman named monica. monica lost her husband, michael, on 9/11. he was in the south tower. he was 37 years old. she immediately started working on a memorial, and it was called september's mission. she says her mission was completed, she ended up having a big hand in creating the 9/11 memorial that you see today. i talked with her a little bit earlier, and here's what she had to say. >> i'm just so blessed to be able to be here and honored to be able to greet our holiness and thank him for just being here. and my daughters, what a legacy

8:22 am
by the way for example, as you call to the archdiocese in the would walk you out to the door to say good-bye. >> adrian, do me a favor stay with us. monsignor, stay with us. we'll be b that sound. like nails on a chalkboard. but listen to this: (family talking) that's a different kind of sound. the sound of the weekend. unleash the power of dough. give it a pop. it's always worth remembering... that icing the cinnamon rolls is a privilege not a right. unleash the power of dough. give it a pop. we love, love, chocolaty, creamy, with a little something extra. mmm deliciousness. cookies or almonds. yumminess.

pope from one place to another. popemobile. this is about logistics so far. >> he will be a all over town. he will be at the united nations. memorial. he will be uptown at east harlem in a school. will be at central park and madison square garden. >> here he is is this morning leaving east 72nd street. this is not an area where the public could easily see him. he is surrounded in a armed cocoon. heavily armed police officers. security they told us would be very tight. we see that first-hand here. >> by the way i hear the pontiff is taking all the meals at the papal residence. so there might be, after one or two of the stops, he might be heading back for lunch at the papal residence. >> this is his arrival, about 20 minutes ago at the united nations. they have a contingent of children -- i want to remind folks we have expert analysis and observations coming from our
8:26 am
we have monsignor james. thank you very much for being with us. >> with the brooklyn diocese of brooklyn and queens. he was at airport yesterday to greet the pontiff. >> jamie, a silversmith and good personal friend of the pope francis. they do back more than a year. pope baptized him. >> married him by the way. >> john gary, religious authority and expert on pope francis. book,. >> the radical pope's challenge to the american catholic church. >> what do you think will happen with today's speech at u.n.? >> i think he hits core themes he talked about throughout his papacy, inequality, sustainable development, putting people at center of the economy. it is inspiring message but no doubt challenging one. he wants to shake up the status quo. >> everyone talks about he is radical and progressive but limited by cannon law, right? i think he tries to push the
8:27 am
boundaries a little bit you outside of them. >> this pope defies boxes. you can't put him in left or right or idealogical sense. he is radical sense going back to the root of the gospel. wants people at center of the conversation. conventions. last shall be first, first shall be last. that is radical good message of the gospel. i think that is what he is putting forward. >> adrian, only person i know had personal chats about sports, music weather. >> around tea. >> with pope francis. you mentioned music. what kind of music does he like? >> he loves classic. and tango music. >> really? does he like to dance? young, yeah. >> he was a bouncer, right? jamie is this true he had quite a storied background. >> i was watching a documentary on him. in his early years he was bouncer.
8:28 am
he really liked to dance. he almost got married. was serious with a girl. that is, he was in confession the at time he felt that he had a calling that he wanted to become a priest. >> john, back to you, how would you define the francis effect? what is it? i know, i kind of feel it but i don't know if i can articulate it. >> something in the air. no, he is getting people to look at the church inra different way. unfortunately in recent years, people look at the church kind of a, someone wag as finger. i think he is reaching out of hand. he smiles. he has a sense of humor. i think he is welcoming people in. he want as church with open doors. i think that is part of it. i think he is shakeing up political debates focusing on inequality and climate change. >> john, i was wondering in your research what was the pivotal moment where he decided he was going to commit his life to god? >> he had a very powerful experience as young man.
8:29 am
felt the need to go to confession. he said after the experience he felt the tug of the priesthood. it was kind of a epiphany for him. very dramatic experience for him. >> live pictures for him. we believe the pope is in ban ki-moon's office right now. that is the last we saw him. we're outside down the hall it looks like. monsignor jamie, you know, we love the pope. francis effect is great but if i'm not mistaken there is some grumbling in certain quarters of catholic church about perceived loosening up of standards. >> that's true. some of the conservatives would question, you know his welcoming of homosexuality and lessening the annulment process and thinks like that you know but he's, i remember when we were in world youth day in rio and he ended by saying to the young people go out and make a mess. he wants to stir the pot.
8:30 am
it is counter cult trillion. -- counter cultural. the gospel is at core of pastoral ministry. >> is he aware in the united states there is little backlash to all that has gone on with the priests and sexual abuse and people not going to church as much as they used to? >> he is very much aware of everything that is going on. i know yesterday at st. patrick's cathedral, thanked religious sisters for the work that they have done especially in education and all the work they do for the church but he also addressed the priests and everyone said, first we have to be very gracious and show gratitude to god for our blessings. we have to show the joy of the gospel through our work. we have to work hard. that should be our satisfaction and joy, not look for worldly pleasures. knows what is out there. he knows what is happening with the church and he is a man that really wants to turn things around.
8:31 am
>> we can enjoy a few worldly pleasures along the way though, right, please? >> yesterday he said pleasure time should be, spend time in prayer but also doing work, working hard. that should be our fulfillment in life. working hard and bringing out the gospel to people. >> mon senior jamie, adrian, john, stand by. we'll take a quick break. we'll be back here with pope francis here in new york city. he is at the united nations right now. we got you covered.
